DR. BRENDAN DUNFORD | BurrenLife

Dr. Brendan Dunford is the founder of Burren LIFE, a multidimensional resource supporting the sustainable management and use of unique landscapes in Ireland.

Burren LIFE’s Farming for Conservation Programme allows farmers to lead in the development and delivery of critical conservation actions on their farms, creating financial incentives for the delivery of public goods.

There are currently 320 farmers participating in the Burren LIFE scheme covering 60,000 acres of land in the region, with plans to expand to other regions in Ireland in the next few years, beginning with areas where hen harriers and pearl mussels are found. Burren Life have also joined a new 13-partners consortium, the High Nature Valley-Link, whose aim is to collect and disseminate innovative solutions for supporting European farmland.
